All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (7)

  • There simply aren't any other films around this Christmas that deliver as much solid entertainment as "The Mirror Crack'd.

    April 28, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The Christie plot ends up so drastically foreshortened that you'd swear a reel must have been misplaced, although the sluggish direction of Guy Hamilton doesn't make one anxious to see it restored.

  • The good lines make Mirror more fun to watch than it has any right to be.

    March 23, 2011 | Full Review…
  • For all her prolificacy, Agatha Christie relied too often on one particular plot twist, and as soon as you recognize her old favorite here, the film loses all interest.

    March 23, 2011 | Full Review…
  • A nostalgic throwback to the genteel British murder mystery pix of the 1950s.

  • Though it's obvious after five minutes that this is a complete no-no, the cinema equivalent of a bellyflop, it exercises a perverse fascination

Audience Reviews for The Mirror Crack'd

  • Feb 18, 2014
    An all-star cast usually indicates a lack of substance in a film -- one that relies on flashiness over story telling. The Mirror Crack'd is no exception. Nevertheless, it is an enjoyable film despite its credulity-stretching reveal and typical confession-without-compelling-evidence resolution. It's a fun lark, but not serious film...and the cat fights should be on every diva-watcher's "must see" list.

    As usual with a star studded cast, your focus gets lost, and the story gets boring. Other than that, the mystery is pretty interesting. If you're a fan of these kind of films, watch it, it's pretty good.

    Kim Novak is the standout here with a wonderfully droll performance, but the picture borders on poor taste sticking as closely as it does to the Gene Tierney tragedy.

    Elizabeth Taylor is quite a spectacle here, playing a character much like her own self. Angela Lansbury as Marple is awesome. The suspects: Tony Curtis, Rock Hudson and Kim Novak give the movie some flair. I found it a bit dry and long, but the murders kept the momentum going.
